We took a day trip into York when we were down south. The city was littered with Art Deco.
This cinema was on the road in from the Park and Ride. We walked back out so that I could take the photographs. (It’s not that far outside the old walls, just beyond Micklegate Bar actually, and we passed a second hand bookshop on the way which consumed some time.)
It used to be the Odeon but seems to be named the Reel cinema now.
The new camera has a wide angle lens and seems to give tall or long buildings a tilted or curved look.
This is from the left hand side, lovely sweeping curve here. The windows, here, above the door and on the right hand side have been replaced by modern ones but reasonably in keeping with what the originals must have looked like.
It’s similar in style but not detail to the Odeon in Chester.
There’s something about the brick, though. It could be so much more. Wouldn’t this building look really fantastic rendered in concrete and painted white with pastel highlights?
